Review of A Cab Ride Over Donner Pass 2 Disc Set DVD

 4.3 of 5 (10)
A Cab Ride Over Donner Pass - California's Sierra Nevada Mountain range is legendary for its rich history of gold discovery, pioneers and settlers. It remains a rugged and challenging landscape where railroading has survived fierce winter storms for nearly one hundred and fifty years.

Get ready as we climb aboard the an EMD SD60 hauling an expedited MRVRO freight manifest heading East from Roseville Yard to Sparks, Nevada. Just sit back and enjoy the ride!

Heading up the 2.5%+ grades of the Sierras, three separate cameras are used to produce this 240 minute rail action exclusive. Two cameras strategically placed on the lead unit #6356, bring you Donner Rail's exclusive Live Train Cam experience. Number one camera mounted on the front porch captures all the forward action as our train rolls East.

Number 2 camera aimed down the long hood of our lead unit at 2nd and 3rd units, gives you all the live diesel action while an on-board roaming camera captures all the hard-to-imagine beau
